  • MacBook Air (late 2008 or newer)
  • Mac mini (early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (early 2008 or newer)

Check System Requirements

  • Must have OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed on computer
  • At least 2GB of memory

Back Up Your Computer

Just in case, it's always ideal to back up your Mac's data with Time Machine before downloading a new operating system.

Once your computer is ready to go, start downloading Yosemite from the App Store.
